Vietnam: Day Trips & Extensions


Below are Goway’s Vietnam day tours and extensions listed in alphabetical order by city (there are many more options we haven’t listed). They combine well with our Vietnam stopovers/city breaks. As experts in customizing itineraries to suit your personal interests, time available and budget, we look forward to being of service to you.

  • Ho Chi Minh City: Full Day Cu Chi and Ho Chi Minh City Tour including lunch

    Journey out of Ho Chi Minh City to the Cu Chi region, where you will visit the vast underground network of tunnels built first as a defence against the French, and later expanded during the Vietnam war. It was from here that the North Vietnamese waged their guerrilla warfare. You will marvel at their ingenuity and resilience. See secret trapdoors, underground kitchens, living areas and meeting rooms. The more adventurous may explore the deeper second, and even third level tunnels. For those preferring to remain above ground, there is ample opportunity to view excavated areas from above. Your guide will advise you of the length and level of difficulty of each tunnel before entering - some are easily accessed by stairs. We recommend good walking shoes and sun protection for this tour and advise you may get a little dirty! In the afternoon, enjoy a tour of Ho Chi Minh City. Proceed to the former Presidential Palace, which is now preserved as a museum, including the underground communications bunker headquarters for the Saigon Government during the War. Continue to the History Museum, which houses an excellent display tracing the origins of the indigenous Vietnamese. Visit Notre Dame, an impressive neo-Romanesque cathedral in the centre of city. Lunch is included.

  • Hoi An: Walking Half Day Tour

    Just a short drive from Danang is the unique trading town of Hoi An; a civilization cut off by destroyed rail lines and a silted river, leaving it untouched by war and almost frozen in time. No cars are allowed to pass through Hoi An, rendering it an excellent walking village. You are transferred from your hotel/resort to the town to start your walking tour which includes a visit to Chinese communal houses/pagodas, the unique Japanese covered bridge, architecture reminiscent of traders of a bygone era - Japanese, French, Chinese, and Indian, as well as beautifully preserved ancient houses. You will also have chance to visit the Hoi An local market or shop for art at one of the numerous galleries and enjoy the riverside ambience.

  • Hue: Half Day Emperors of Contrast by Road to Tu Duc and Khai Dinh Tomb

    The hills surrounding Hue are dotted with the tombs of the Nguyen dynasty emperors. Built not only as an eternal resting place, the tombs were designed for recreation; somewhere the Emperor could fish, hunt and enjoy the company of concubines in his twilight years. Your tour combines visits to two of the most contrasting tombs. First, you will visit the tomb of Emperor Tu Duc, resplendent in traditional architecture, paved walkways, resting pavilions overlooking tranquil lotus ponds, and a small forest for hunting. In stark contrast, you will continue on to Khai Dinh's Tomb. Remembered as the "Puppet Emperor" because of his affiliation with the French, this tomb was designed with colonial flair, and a glass mosaic frieze dominates the interior.

  • Hue: Perfume River Cruise to Thien Mu Pagoda & Imperial Citadel Half Day Tour

    Enjoy one of the most notable features of Hue, the meandering Perfume (Huong) River that divides the city. As both the Imperial Citadel and the Thien Mu Pagoda are situated on the river banks, boating on a simple, yet comfortable, vessel offers you a relaxing alternative to the Imperial Hue tour. Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant.
